Hawthorne Heights Singled Out Week: Ohio Is For Lovers

07/03/2013
.
Earlier this week Hawthorne Heights's Eron Bucciarelli told us about a song from their new album "Zero" and today he tells us about one of band's biggest hits, "Ohio Is For Lovers" which you are likely to hear as they headline the Warped Tour this summer. Here is the story:

This is perhaps our most well known song and also perhaps the most understood song we've ever written. For being so successful for us, it was ironically written at the last minute a week prior to entering the studio. Even after we recorded it, we didn't expect it to be a single, hence the placement of it as track 8 on our first album (as opposed to the more traditional track 2 or 3 for the first single). We all expected Silver Bullet to be the lead-off single. The label didn't care for the slowed down tempo and felt it lost something from the blistering fast demo which they had essentially signed us off of. Perhaps if we had kept the same tempo, things would've turned out differently for our career. Who knows?

We've gotten a lot of grief over the years from the lyric "cut my wrists and black my eyes" as many take it at face value as a call to self-harm. This really couldn't be further from the truth and despite attempts to explain it in various interviews the explanation seems to go unnoticed by fervent critics and perhaps a big portion of our fanbase. That seems to be how media works - retractions are always page two. We by no means endorse harming oneself and have worked with organizations such as To Write Love On Her Arms and Take Action to raise awareness of the problem and let people know there are alternatives.

Ohio Is For Lovers is a song about heartache. It's about being away from loved ones for the first time, like we knew we would be while in the studio for a month making our first record. Ohio Is For Lovers is as much an endorsement of self-harm and suicide as is Romeo And Juliet. Perhaps with time people will dig a little deeper.

You can read their previous Singled Out for their new song "Spark" here and find out more about the new album and see if the Warped Tour is coming to a venue near you right here!
